A very special THANK YOU to all those that volunteered their time, their services, their products, their knowledge, efforts in ensuring that my LAST big event during my term which was my Taste of Teaneck was truly a success in EVERY way. From restaurants, to tricky trays, to sponsors, to entertainment, to the Interact Club, and to volunteers -- all was perfectly orchestrated. I truly appreciated all the attendees that made this a success, all my friends, colleagues, the board members that I am involved in, my networking groups, my Rotary District members, and others that showed up to support me and my club.  A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU to my Chair Joel Goldin and Co-Chair Liz Santos for volunteering their time knowing the amount of work required along with managing the entire project to make this a great event. They have gone the EXTRA MILE, along with the support of  my  volunteers for the event committee and the Tricky Tray committee to make this successful. I hold dear to control and knowing I had experience, skilled, and a ready to work SOLID TEAM on board made it easy for me. Truly appreciate finishing my term with a GREAT EVENT and raised money to donate to my chosen charities for 2015-2016.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
